Drawing & Painting II students have started a new project. Working with a square composition, they are creating linoleum print self portraits. We use the square composition so much with social media but can find it difficult to incorporate the composition into our art work. So, we are starting with as few elements as possible. Creating a linoleum print allows us to focus on contrast and texture while cropping our images. Some students cropped their self portraits so very little recognizable information is visible while others included more information. Next we are carving the linoleum blocks.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
